Cabana was founded when restaurateur Jamie Barber, creator of Hush, Villandry and Sake No Hana, contacted his old friend, restaurateur David Ponte, who was born in Rio. Their shared passion for Brasilian food and informal eating led them to their first branch Cabana in London. They now have seven branches in the UK, with more in the pipeline. Jamie's sister Lizzy Barber came on board to take care of the words and whip them into shape.
